If you only think of concerts when you think of Red Rocks, you’re missing out big time, says Beth Steffens on The iconic outdoor amphitheater in Morrison, Colo. offers enough opportunities for fun and adventure to make a whole day of it.

Steffens suggests watching the sunrise at Red Rocks, attempting to climb all 69 rows of its seating, going for a hike at the nearby Trading Post Trail, taking a guided Red Rocks tour to learn the park’s history, eating lunch at the Morrison Inn (complete with a Red Rocks Margarita) and finishing the day with a movie during the Film on the Rocks series.


Of the guided tour, Steffens writes, “You’ll start in the Visitor Center and learn the park’s history, watch a documentary, check out concert footage, become geologically informed, and see the Performers Hall of Fame, which includes mementos from some of Red Rock’s top performers (think: Santana and the Police).”
